Thanks to competitions like the Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) and the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the perceptions of women in football are slowly changing across the continent. Now, Nike Women has added its voice to the movement with the release of A Game for All.
Directed by Nigerian-American filmmaker, Amarachi Nwosu, the short film is set in Lagos, drawing from Nwosu’s football experience in high school. Joining other emerging female directors — from London to New York — Nwosu captures what the game looks like in her community.
Speaking about the short, Nwosu said:
“So glad I was able to represent Nigeria and be a part of pushing the narrative of women’s soccer globally and the power of making the game inclusive for all.”
In Nigeria, one shining example of a woman succeeding in football is Asishat Oshoala, who has a number of accolades and trophies to her name. When the short shows girls taking on boys in street football, we are reminded of Oshoala’s humble beginnings in Ikorodu.
